Applying a homemade beauty serum to your face nourishes your skin as well as your organs. Most commercial cosmetics contain surfactants that drive toxic chemicals deeper into the skin. Essential oil based beauty serums carry the nutrients and the life force of the plants into the skin and eventually into the bloodstream. You can create a solution of 3% essential oil in a carrier base oil of jojoba, rose hip seed, apricot kernel, avocado, argan, sweet almond, borage or sesame. The carrier oil dilutes the essential oil and makes it more bio-available. Safe essential oils for the face are Geranium, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Carrot seed, Neroli, Rose, and Lavender. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to warmed coconut oil to make a face cream. Stir the mixture and wait for it to harden and cool before applying.
